No. Never. If you do that then the address is tainted and you *cannot* legitimately use information as it as evidence that mail sent to it was unwanted. You can still use it for quite a few interesting things, but you can't use it as a spamtrap (unless you want to spend another year rejecting everything). I talked about this at some length about six and a half years ago. It wasn't a new problem then. https://wordtothewise.com/2011/08/a-disturbing-trend/ Cheers, Steve _______________________________________________ mailop mailing list email@example.com https://chilli.nosignal.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/mailop
